BANGOR, Maine — Bangor police arrested a local man on numerous warrants last week after they were called to Bradford Commons to look into a matter unrelated to him.
While officers were there, they ran across David Fisher, 46, whom they determined was wanted on seven warrants, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday. Edwards said that it was not clear in the arrest report how Fisher came to the attention of police or what the warrants were for.
Edwards said that Fisher also was charged with unlawful possession of a scheduled drug when the prescription medication suboxone, which is used to treat opiate addiction, was found on his person.
After his arrest on Aug. 20, Fisher was taken to Penobscot County Jail. He since has been released on bail, Edwards said.
Last week’s arrest was not Fisher’s first, according to the BDN archives.
In 2010, he was convicted of theft on two different occasions as well as violating bail conditions, driving with a suspended license and forgery.
In 2009, he was found guilty of theft, driving with a suspended license and theft by unauthorized use of property.
Other convictions include failure to report an accident by the quickest means and misuse of identification.
